I was 13 when I moved to the US with my parents. When I first went to school here it was the worst experience of my life. Middle schools in the US have to be the worst. Then two months later we moved to a new town and it was a whole new ball game. The school was very diverse thus full of mixed cultures. I used to introduce my self to these hispanic people thinking they were Indian. I didn't even know that their race existed.

The best part was ofcourse college. Woo Hoo can americans party or what?

As far as adjustments are concerned, losing the Indian accent was one. It only took a couple of months. Didn't grab the concept of Homecoming games in the beginning. Running the mile in school! I also learned the importance of physical fitness. The biggest adjustment of all, freedom of speech. It was unbelievable that kids were so rude to the teachers in school.

Being a female, I was glad there wasn't a "TOLI" of guys walking me home from school everyday. Or guys waiting in the Gali. Freedom from alot of negative aspects of India.

Cool_Jazzmin I had some of the same experiences as you. Desi guys are the biggest hypocrites here. And some desi girls are even worse. Spreading rumors cuz they are jealous and things like that. I'm so glad I'm past that stage now.

The first time I was stopped for speeding, I almost shit in my pants. I was scared the cop would misbehave like the Indian police does. Anyway, I pretended like I was very new to the US and didn't know a word of english and I got out of that ticket. I was surprised by the cop's politeness. That was my first encounter with the law here.

In the beginning, (12 yrs ago) I did experience prejudice on a few occasions but not anymore. Overall, I learned a lot in the first few months of moving here.
